Ninja has revealed that he is setting his sights on Hollywood – and 2020 couldn’t get any wilder.

The Twitch streamer has become popular online for his livestreams of videos games such as Fortnite, and he has also attracted a large following on social media.

Ninja – real name Richard Tyler Blevins – is now hoping to branch out just one step further into the entertainment industry.

Speaking to Hollywood Reporter, he simply told them: ‘Literally anything and everything Hollywood. Music, voice acting, cartoons.’

We’ll take his word for it then.

It seems he’s really keen to get involved with lending his voice to the next big animated motion picture, adding: ‘I love doing Jim Carrey from The Grinch.’

Ninja currently does not have a talent agent, but that hasn’t stopped him from reading scripts and pitching ideas for projects that he could star in.

He continued: ‘It just has to make sense. If it’s tough because I’m not comfortable with it yet, I can work on that.

‘But if it’s tough because I’m not good, I’m not going to cry over it.’

The 29-year-old has already had a taste of Hollywood stardom, having appeared on season two of the US version of The Masked Singer last year as the Ice Cream Cone, becoming the first contestant to be eliminated.

If that wasn’t enough, he has also livestreamed with Drake and taught his signature dance move, the Pon Pon, to Jimmy Fallon.

And it doesn’t stop there, as he’s set to make a cameo appearance in Ryan Reynold’s upcoming film Free Guy.

Speaking of the opportunity, Ninja explained: ‘They were like, “You were amazing, you’re a natural.”

‘I kept telling Jess [Goch; his wife], they’re just gassing me up, saying that so I don’t think I suck.

‘But we’re being told that it’s not gas, so I hope it’s amazing.’

Ninja added that despite his goals, he has always feared becoming a sell-out.

‘I tell Jess every day, I’m never going to work with someone I don’t want to work with and I’m never going to endorse something that I don’t like,’ he added.

Hopefully we’ll be seeing more of Ninja on the big screen in the near future then.
